The essayistic documentary 'Nature: all rights reserved' examines the context, experience and various forms of simulated nature.

Artificial grass on the balcony, a conference room with a wallpaper forest, a palm beach in the dentist’s waiting room. This short documentary examines the role of simulated nature in our society. To what extent does artificial nature meet the needs of city dwellers and where do the simulations fall short? Will artificial nature replace real nature one day?
